Summer Breeze challenge hop

See the curtains hangin' in the window in the evenin' on a Friday night
A little light a-shinin' through the window lets me know everything is alright
Summer breeze makes me feel fine 
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze makes me feel fine 
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
See the paper layin' on the sidewalk a little music from the house next door
So I walked on up to the doorstep through the screen and across the floor
Sweet days of summer the jasmine's in bloom 
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day's work and you're waiting there not a care in the world
See the smile a-waitin' in the kitchen food cookin' and the plates for two
Feel the arms that reach out to hold me in the evening when the day is through
Summer Breeze Lyrics by Seals and Croft

If you have come to visit me today, I'm honored but I wouldn't want you to miss a single creative spot and would want you to start at the beginning which is Lynne at You should have arrived from my creative accomplice Anita Cannon.

Now, to showcase my creativity, I have for you today I have made a card with images and colors that make me think summer.

The words and the lady on the front are from the Cricut cartridge Forever Young. It's hard to see in my terrible picture taking, but the dot of the i on bling is a rhinestone, they were also used as the center of the flowers on her dress, in her hair and there are 3 on the top right and on the bottom left of the card. The paper is from my scrap bin. To lengthen and emphasize I folded a piece of eight by eight card stock in half, so the card is 4 inches by eight inches. I backed the cuts and the accent paper with yellow, which made me think of sunshine. I found the sentiment I used on the inside of the card in the Country Life Cricut cartridge. I was looking for "You Are My Sunshine", but I liked this as well. I imagine her standing on a beach, or in a field enjoying a nice breeze and feeling fine. I hope you liked my card. Too bad you can't really see the vibrant, summery colors.

With all this being said, sadly, I must send you on your way to our next super crafty friend, Janet. Summer breeze makes me feel fine; blowing through the jasmine in my mind....
